About The Department

The department of Civil and Infrastructure Engineering offers an undergraduate program leading to Bachelor of Science degree in Civil and Infrastructure Engineering. A pioneer program among Jordanian universities that combines Civil and Infrastructure Engineering. This program is offered by distinguished and highly qualified faculty members with degrees from the United States, United Kingdom and other European Universities. The program is 160 credit hours with a balance between hands on and instructional experiences aimed at preparing highly motivated and capable engineering graduates. The department employs highly advanced laboratories with state of the art equipment and machinery in the areas of geotechnical engineering, hydraulics, hydrology, land surveying, traffic engineering, pavement design, construction materials, drinking water, and waste water engineering. These laboratories enrich the hands on experiences of the students and assist the faculty in conducting research in relevant areas of Civil Engineering and Infrastructure.
The department provides a stimulating environment for outstanding education. Past graduates of the program had joined the local and regional industries in the job markets and had assumed leading roles at the places of their hire.
The program is currently working towards acquiring ABET accreditation. This accreditation ensures that the graduates of the program are prepared for an extended productive career in a rapidly-changing world, while promoting an appreciation of leadership qualities, professionalism, and ethics. These graduates are well prepared to offer professional engineering services of the highest quality to the community; and to contribute to expanding the knowledge in civil and infrastructure engineering.

The most important accomplishments of the Department are as follows:

1. Updating the Department’s course plan and education resources to suit the Department’s vision for the education process.

2. Encouraging teaching staff members to conduct scientific research and publish in refereed scientific journals and international conferences.

3. Organizing a number of curricular and extracurricular activities for the purpose of communicating and interacting with the community
